In 2017, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE) have commissioned a joint report on the use of Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) funding at national level. This report presents a critical analysis of the implementation of the AMIF via the EU Member States’ National AMIF Programmes. The report’s specific objectives are to support the assessment of AMIF national programming due to be undertaken in the 2018 mid-term review. It makes specific recommendations for better management and use of AMIF funds during the remainder of the AMIF multiannual funding period and provides input to assist the European Commission, EU Member States and partners to develop European asylum, migration and integration funding instruments post-2020.

UNHCR and ECRE have the pleasure to invite you to an event for the launch of the report. Following a brief presentation of the key findings and recommendations of the report, there will be a panel discussion looking at opportunities and challenges for funding for asylum and migration post-2020.

The launch will take place on Tuesday 23 January from 14.30 to 16.30 at the Press Club Brussels Europe, rue Froissart 95, 1040 Brussels – metro Schuman. A welcome coffee will be served at 14.00 before starting the panel discussion.

Panel of speakers:
Annabelle Roig-Granjon, Senior EU Advisor, UNHCR
